If the past few world cups are anything to go by then we’ll be boycotting for ‘footballing reasons’.

It's hard to stomach people in work who mean well  in fairness but make out that it was a good thing that Ireland didn't qualify the morning after the Denmark defeat as Russia is very dodgy anyway to go over to. Had another dose of that today when one of my colleagues said to think how much money you'll save by not going. 

Given the hype is slowly starting to build up for this world cup and EURO 2020 with it's 13 countries (non-tournament feel) as hosts , it'll be the guts of 5 years before we potentially qualify for the next and most attractive tournament in Germany (probably) hopefully.

I wonder for those on here (that travel regularly to Ireland games) that have posted they wouldn't go near Qatar for a world cup even if Ireland qualify, would they probably end up going despite any logistical/financial/political/moral qualms they may have with Qatar given how we haven't been at a world cup since 02?

I would go myself (should we qualify) just to go to see Ireland at a world cup but it has to be the least attractive world cup host country there ever was. 

I think we'd get a surprisingly decent enough support out there given the ex-pat community in the gulf states. Any more than 10K would be a bonus I'd imagine.

Qatar can go f**k itself. 

Only way I'm going to the World Cup in 2022 is if it's taken off them and given to a country like Germany.

Couldn't agree more. Qatar (and their neighbours in the UAE) are a morally reprehensible state with a veneer of modernity and respectability who literally use slave labour. They won't see a penny of my money. 
Whats your thoughts on corruption and cover ups, if your moral compass is so finely tuned you would would not even leave your bed in this fckin country ffs


Wonder how many would have gone to Russia without batting an eyelid LOL

Or the same who will go to the USA or UK without any complaints LOL

I see the qualification draw is in July this year so what seeds are we most likely to be? 3rd? 

Will our EURO 2020 qualification results up until then be included in determining our seeding?

It'll probably depend on FIFA world rankings at that stage. Under the new ranking system, our ranking will changed based upon recent results.

It depends on the release date of the rankings, but I would imagine the rankings used will take account of all results up the end of the Copa America and CONCACAF Gold Cup which finish on 7 July.

We are currently ranked 20th in Europe so if we can get that up to 18th we could be second seeds. Under the new ranking system, every win is good and every loss is bad, no matter who they are against, so it is handy that we have Gibraltar and the home match against Georgia before then, assuming we can win both.

Realistic chance of 3 wins and a draw before then

Oh yeah, sorry, forgot about the Gib home game in June as well. That is quite handy.

Now, of course, a win against better opposition is worth more than a win against worse opposition, but it is still handy to have two close-to-guaranteed wins, plus Georgia at home, before then. Like we have our three most winnable games before the draw, which is probably fortuitous.
